Flint, Michigan

Flint, located along the Flint River, is a city in southeast-central Michigan, 66 miles northwest of Detroit. Flint’s estimated population is over 100,000, making it the seventh largest city in Michigan. Flint serves as the county seat of Genesee County which lies in the Flint/Tri-Cities region of Michigan.

Founded on the site of a fur-trading post established in 1819, Flint distinguished itself as an automobile-manufacturing center in the early 1900s. Since the late 1960s, Flint has suffered from disinvestment, deindustrialization, depopulation, and urban decay. The 1973 oil crisis and subsequent collapse of the U.S. auto industry exasperated this decline. In the 1980s, the rate of deindustrialization accelerated with local GM employment falling from a 1978 high of 80,000 to below 8,000 by 2010. Only ten percent the manufacturing work force is still left in Flint. In recent years, local efforts have focused on diversifying the economy either by attracting small parts manufacturers with vacant industrial space and tax incentives, or steering the city toward a more commercially driven economy.

Flint, Michigan’s diverse history of manufacturing, particularly within the automobile industry, makes asbestos exposure an ongoing issue for workers and others. Those exposed to asbestos may be at risk for mesothelioma, a potentially terminal cancer. If you were exposed to asbestos in Flint, you may benefit from seeking the advice of a mesothelioma attorney.
